    Great Add on to Solaris 2020

    I saw the ALO Audio PILOT on headphonezone and then decided to read some reviews on the same...unfortunately was not able to find any noise online on the common audiophile platforms however stumbled upon the fact that Campfire Audio is themselves shipping this complimentary with every new order for Solaris 2020. I then spoke with Mr. Raghav and decided to take his opinion whether I should go ahead with the same and got a positive feedback for the same. Finally, received them, they make the Solaris sound far more surreal and the details has definitely gone up, its more like using a tube amp.

    Thanks a ton for sharing your review with us.

    couldn’t tell the difference

    Bought them since it came with a lightning connector adapter, couldn’t tell the difference between these and the apple lightning to 3.5mm adapter. Maybe I didn’t have good enough headphones to be able to tell but I feel at this level of non amplified dacs, the improvement is really marginal, so wouldn’t recommend . Was using tidal on my iPhone 11.

    Hey Arjun, thanks for sharing your honest feedback with us, we really appreciate it!
